Hidden amongst the arid landscape of Joshua Tree, California, american artist Phillip K Smith III‘s ‘Lucid Stead’ dreamily reflects and illuminates the desert panorama. The four surviving windows and doorway are installed with colored LEDs that very slowly shift their chroma during the night. Rotating through the color wheel, the lights subtly mutate their hues from blues to greens, and yellows to reds. These tones reflect onto the surface of the earth, melting into the surrounding sand and brush and creating a remarkably ethereal atmosphere, most kaleidoscopic during dusk.
